Shona Whyte's curator insight, December 29, 2012 2:46 AM

Discrete multiple choice questions on sentence-level grammar: choose the correct version of one sentence, or identify grammatical features, then decide how much you're willing to bet.  

 

The set I tested was probably suitable for lower-intermediate/intermediate learners.  Feedback is immediate, after each answer, but shows the correct answer without an explicit right or wrong evaluation. (You need to check your total score for this information.)

 

Obviously very decontextualised explicit grammar practice, which may have its place in your learning programme and may be more fun than usual.

Todd Parker's curator insight, December 19, 2013 4:21 PM

This is an interactive fraction whiteboard which allows quick manipulation of fractions.  It also allows you to move into different modes such as decimals and percentages and incorporates LCM's and other features as well.  As an instructor, this would be a wonderful tool.  My fifth graders are very slow at using physical math manipulatives.  While it is good to have them physically touching the manipulatives, there are times that you will be lecturing and want to keep the pace up while giving a full and thorough visual of what you are doing.  This allows you to give the manipilative experience at a quick and clean pace and allows you to incorporate decimals and percentages just as quickly if you are teaching the relationships between these concepts.  This is an excellent teacher tool.  It's simple to use and has just about everything you need.  There are tiumes for students to break out the manipulatives and there are times for this tool as well.
